The annual conference is hosted by Great Wall Club (GWC), a group comprised of executives from Chinese companies such as Tencent and their Silicon Valley counterparts.
This collaboration, however, poses a national security threat and runs the risk of intellectual property theft and espionage per the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Tencent, for example, has been characterized by the U.S. State Department as a tool of the Chinese government with no meaningful ability to tell the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) no if officials decide to ask for their assistance,and is among the bevy of Chinese companies banned or on track to be banned by the Trump administration.
Huawei, which has been identified by the Defense Department as assisting the Chinese military for over two decades, and ByteDance, the parent company of TikTok, are also targets of the bans and repeat attendees of the 2009-founded Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC).
Alongside these CCP-compromised companies, American tech companies including Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, Google, Snapchat, and Microsoft have participated as sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers at the Beijing-based GMIC for several years.
The conference, which overwhelmingly counts attendance and support from Chinese companies, also has explicit CCP connections; for example, a 2018 GMIC partner was the Beijing Association for Science and Technology which provides scientific argumentation and policy consulting as a member of the Beijing Municipal Committee of the Chinese Peoples Political Consultative Conference.
